    Maybe it should be a race to a certain score. So each round everyone starts at zero and races to a certain number of points (20?) - and the moment someone hits it then whoever is lowest is out and everyone is back to 0.

    Oh and I'd get rid of voting going by two at a time. Starting at 20 and voting up or down by 2 is the same as starting at 10 and voting up or down by 1 - or starting at 570 and voting up or down by 57
    Hmmm... your second paragraph sounds like a good idea.

    Without downvoting you could simply have the game end after, say, 200 posts.

    Alternatively, a game where you get to upvote with +1 and downvote with -2 or even -3 might see the game played more tactically.

    What bothers me in these games is that everybody uses their downvotes to get rid of soft targets nobody is voting for anyway instead of keeping the guy that's 20 points ahead of everybody else in check. It's not as if there's a prize for eliminating a name.


    Hmm. Maybe allowing a bonus +5 upvote reward when you kill something?

    I have prepared some elimination games but I'll be using the word survivor instead, for 2018!

    Meanwhile, I will experiment the addition game in the x-books forum, which i will create one this week.

    Why not stories or story arcs?
    Days of Future Past
    Coming of Galactus
    Kraven's Last Hunt

    Why not miniseries?
    All Star Superman
    Dark Knight Returns
    Watchmen

    Or maybe runs?
    Snyder on Batman
    Kirby on Fantastic Four
    Simonson on Thor

    Or maybe single issues?
    Spider-Man #50
    Giant Size X-Men #1
    Action Comics #775

    What about events?
    Crisis on Infinite Earths
    Civil War
    DC One Million

    Or best ongoing series right now?
    Thor
    Batman
    Squirrel Girl (I had to put her in here. )

    Comic book movies?
    Avengers
    Spider-Man 2
    Dark Knight

    Tv series based on comics?
    Daredevil
    Flash
    Batman(1966)

    Teams can be great.
    Avengers
    Justice League
    X-Men (I bet this will win)

    Best couples
    Superman and Lois Lane
    Spider-Man and Mary Jane
    Batwoman and Maggie Sawyer

    Comic book writers?
    Comic book covers?
    Comic book artists?

    I feel each would need separate threads. Has CBR made any lists on this? Some like single issues would be really difficult to shortlist.

    I think I'll just continue to use the word "elimination" since we're slowly eliminating a list.

    And Soubhagya, I'll try some of those.

    Plenty of new subjects to choose from, as others have suggested.

    My point is on the format. Perhaps "Last One Standing" where every suggested character gets an automatic starting amount, but you can downvote 2 pts and only upvote 1 pt at a time? And can't go past your initial amount? That way the game won't last 100 pages

    I''ll try something different in 2018 which means, sort of similar rules still if I make another elimination thread this year.

    New Elimination Thread later.

    and World's Top Grossing Movies of 2016 Elimination Thread: http://community.comicbookresources....ination-Thread


    and another one, which is i was planning to start on 2017 but I'll just have to start it now. The most popular Stars Wars characters , 2nd batch: http://community.comicbookresources....46#post3211146

    I've started the following two games. I have it that you can subtract from three items. Hopefully I can avoid the oft-inevitable logjam by having the subtractions out-pace the additions.

    http://community.comicbookresources....y-Thor-Edition

    Another idea that might be a good topic for an elimination game by me or someone else is current 'genre' TV shows such as GoT, Walking Dead, Stranger Things, etc. Or a Netflix Originals game featuring Netflix comedies and dramas of various genres.
